ok, Right now the following LA folks have decided to pick up from Shaun's place in West Covina.

Okay, sounds good. Most everyone has contacted me already. If not, PM for my address. I'm working from home, so my hours are pretty flexible for pickup. Hopefully everyone can pickup same day.

Also, I plan on keeping the bareroot trees in a bucket of collected rainwater with a bag over them and a rope tied around the bucket to seal them in. I'll put them in my greenhouse for extra protection. Is this okay with everyone or is there a better way to store these trees?

EDIT: Since most people are picking up same day, maybe it's best to leave the trees in their original bags until they're picked up. If you do want me to keep the roots in a bucket of rain water, or any other request, feel free to let me know. Also, I'm near a Home Depot if you would prefer to pick up in a public place.


I'd prefer to pick up from Spring St. if possible. I'm in West Covina and can hold some trees to save someone a trip to Santa Monica.

Bill, I made a slight change to my order on the spreadsheet. I also added a tree and sent you $50 on paypal.

Thanks again Bill, Ronni and Jozeph for your time and effort!

Good luck with your surgery and recovery!

Try m. glazioviana. It's the most available myrciaria and seems pretty durable and easy to care for. I believe Adam from FFF grafted a couple different myrciaria to it. Good luck

Good luck!

You think the foliage looks like a garcinia??!?

I'm no expert on garcinia, or anything for that matter, but some have leaves that look like your pics.

Here is Campomanesia xanthocarpa. Veins are different, but they look a little similar.

Looks kinda like Campomanesia, but usually there's a calyx on the fruit. Probably a Garcinia

Hello Bill. I'm in for at least 10 trees. Thanks again.

Try FLnative.

This post seems to still be active and he has Orange Grumi cuttings available --

4/5 of my plants are either alive, pushing or leafed out. DK male and Black Carbon female leafed out quickly. WuSu female buds dried out, but still green under the bark. And just last week, DK female started pushing green buds. Interesting that with that same soil and location, DK male leafed out 4 months before DK female. Crystal is the only one that didn't make it, but I'll keep it around in case the rootstock takes over. I had them in a greenhouse against a west facing wall that gets unprotected late sun. I don't think they cared for that very much. I've up potted and moved them under full time shade cloth. Thanks again Bill/Amy/Joe! Hoping we can do another order this year

Plants arrived today looking good, thank you!

Great! Hope you enjoy them. Thanks again!

Down to my last 3-4 if anyone is interested.

I bought some seeds from Tang Tonic in late 2020 or early 2021. They took their sweet time germinating and did not grow very quickly after they finally germinated. Knowing how slow and irregular their germination rate is, I did not toss the un-germinated seeds. They have been kept moist and warm; so, who knows; maybe the rest of them will show some signs of life at some point?

I planted about 50 seeds from fresh fruit in late October. They were babied with rain and spring water while sitting on a temp controlled heat mat. Seven months later...about 10 have sprouted ??? including a couple last week. So yeah, very sporadic. Don't give up on them. I did recently crank up the heat mat a few degrees at night. Maybe that helped the recent sprouts

Location in SoCal?

Los Angeles

Thanks everyone for your orders. Still a few plants left!

Hello. I have some Sartre Guava plants available. Over a year old. Stocky and healthy with roots bursting.

I really enjoy these fruits. They remind me a bit of sweet pink grapefruit, with a unique myrtle "spice". Sold by street vendors in Mexico, either plain or with chili powder and salt or sugar.  You can find a few video reviews of the fruit on youtube.

In the myrtle family, they are also quite ornamental, with a copper colored bark that peels regularly exposing a pink and green trunk. I have a flowering mature tree (last pic) that might fruit this year. I can offer free scions (+$10 S&H) if you want to graft to these in the future to speed up fruiting. Although these trees can flower/fruit in 3-5 years from seed. Thanks for looking.

1@ $30
2@ $50
3@ $75
4@ $100

+ $10 Shipping

Paypal/US only. Local pickup available (LA/SGV). Feel free to message me any questions.

Very cool! I have a couple humming birds that visit my pomegranate tree. They never fail to amaze me.

Also, thanks for the generous mulberry cuttings Kaz! I was even able to reuse the bags and rubber bands that the cuttings came in.

That sucks. I still have the seedling you gave me. I'd offer you seeds or cuttings if you don't mind waiting a few years ::)

Frank (FLnative) might have some cuttings available.

As far as rooting them, check this out

They do take a while to germinate. Richard Reid generously sent me 4 seeds back in September. One sprouted three months ago. Two others popped up a few weeks ago.
And while separating the three seedlings, I found the last seed with a new 1/4" white root sticking out. So don't give up them too soon! Anyways, congrats! I'm looking
forward to trying these. I hear they can fruit in just a few years

That's C. guazumifolia. I have a similar seedling right now

Cuttings look great! Thanks Kaz! 

Your photos aren't linked correctly, so I can't see them full size.

Looks like maybe overwatering during winter months. It's trying to push without proper light and heat.
Check soil ph too if new growth is light in color

I'm in again. Possibly ordering for a couple friends too. Thanks Bill

No way!

I always guess 42 but shifted it up- hope at least one of you is a douglas adams fan

grats shmojojo

Thanks, but you got another shot at it, elouicious! Good luck!
